A compass like this one (the handle of the spoon pointing to magnetic South) is one of the 4 great inventions of ancient China. The others are paper (yeah, we know), gunpowder and the printing press in case you were wondering. Invented over 2000 years ago compasses were originally used for geomancy. But by 1000 AD innovative travelers had begun using the compass as a navigational aid.

At CCM we hope to become your trusted guide as you navigate through unfamiliar territory to arrive at your destination in China.
